You need to post the make and model of your car.

Generally if the cruise control light is on, on the dash indicator then the problem is in the steering wheel electrical connection.

Then internal wiring connecting the steering wheel cruise control switch is connected to the dash by a special wire called a clock-spring ribbon. This is located under/behind the steering wheel. It is not a self service repair item and required a good deal of expertise to repair. Sorry, but you will most likely need to take it to a qualified mechanic. Because the steering wheel also contains an airbag, do not attempt to do this repair yourself!!!

Cruise controlnot working


Do you have an airbag light lit ? Are your cruise control buttons on the steering wheel . If so the clock spring could have an open circuit. A clock spring is a part inside the steering column , under the steering wheel . Check out this video on clock spring .
https://youtu.be/4jv2DW39drA if no airbag light ,then probably not this part.

Horn, cruise control, and radio controls on steering wheel do not work ?


The clockspring behind the steering wheel is possibly defective or unplugged. It is the one and only component that all of your symptoms have in common.
